At the southwest corner of Lismore, The Lady's Rock serves as nature's eternal monument to the vicious brutality of a specific clan. The Lady's Rock is visible under typical tidal situations, however during high tide it is hidden under the sea. A chieftain from Duart in the 16th century had a secret wish to divorce his wife, who was said to be the 1527 daughter of the Earl of Argyll.
Maclean arrived several days later to deliver the devastating news of his daughter's death to the Earl.
He pretended to be inconsolable in his grief until the exact woman he believed he had lost strolled into his presence, revealing his dishonesty. Duart's wife lived for many years after escaping Lady's Rock, but he suffered the ultimate pay for his merciless conduct.

According to some versions of the story, this gigantic black beast is Satan himself. Regardless, An Gorm Mor determined to put his skills to the test against this formidable foe.
